obama had laid out for me. i believed that he wanted afghan sovereignty and the growth of the government to be protective. that's what i understood. so i described, i said i don't think that is enough. i think if you are going to achieve stability in afghanistan, and i think that we should, then i think it's going to take a wider approach. >> rose: in that q&a was vice president biden. >> there was none to vice president by issue. >> rose: the perception was the vice president did not think a counterinsurgency tactic was right for afghanistan and believed counterstorm using sort of common parlances was more appropriate less troops and a more focused effort to go at al-qaeda which is what you had done in iraq. >> interesting. what i had done in iraq only really matured to full effectiveness when the counterinsurgency strategy came in with general petraeus married together then we started to have real effect. i had pretty strong feelings if we're going to succeed in afghanistan we had to do both. a reporter said i was criticized in vice president biden's concept. i didn't know t

obama kept referring to the spring when afghan troops will take the lead, a very vague phrase to say the least. president karzai was very specific, he said americans troops will come out of the villages and go back to their bases, and that's very different from who takes the lead. so i think the president's very clear here, our president, that he's moving more quickly than he thought possible, to reduce the active american role there. and i think that's a real mistake on our part. you can talk all you want about what our true presence is going to be after 2014, but if we reduce even more quickly and more precipitously in terms of numbers than we've talked about, we're simply hasteening the day when the colorful hamid karzai will depart the scene and the taliban will take over again and invite al-qaeda back into the country. >> megyn: and maybe invite hamid karzai to follow through on his previous statement about joining them. i mean, what-- >> or swing from a noose. >> megyn: right. and at this pace, what are things going to look like. i mean, the summer, this summer of 2013, with th
